Maletti and Hiro Barber Shop: '30s style, innovative technology

25 january 2019

Hiro Vitanza, founder of the two “Hiro Barber shop” in Milan, is a leader in the Italian barber world. Innovator and visionary, he’s one of the pioneers of the “barber trend” which is living a moment of brilliance and re-launching in our country. Thanks to his twenty-year experience, he has created a model of shop where tradition and innovation combine meeting the greatest expression and giving the customer a unique experience. The aesthetics proposed in his barber shops has its roots in the tradition of the old barber technique: a rereading of the traditional models of haircut and beard trimming, proposed in a contemporary key. As background, a ‘30s shop where every detail has been chosen by Hiro himself with a great care to create a unique experience in its genre. A great attention has been also paid to the choice of ergonomic furnishings which offer the best comfort both to customers and operators. Protagonist in his barber shops, the Zerbini 1906 chair, reviewed by Elisa Gargan Giovannoni. The iconic reclining chair for men has been chosen by Hiro for both the aesthetics and its technical characteristics, in place of the centenarian Amata. It has an adjustable and pull-out headrest and a footrest with a tipping tread plate. The structure in enamelled aluminium and chrome-finish steel, the use of the polyurethane foam for the seat, the back, the legrest and the armrests and the hydraulic swivel pump with anti-tipping tread plate make the Zerbini 1906 the ideal chair for every type of barber shop.
